1994 540i automatic. Brake pedal sticks when pressed, thus leaving the
brake lights on. I can pull it back up with my foot and the lights go
out. Even though pedal sticks, it doesn't feel as if the brakes
themselves are sticking.
Is this a simple thing like needing to lube the brake pedal mechanism,
or something else? Thoughts? Thanks.
Beat me to it by an hour!
I had this same problem on my RHD E28. The damn things are designed as LHD
and the master cylinder is also on the lefthand side of the engine bay. It's
'remotely' operated by a linkage rod running across the bulkhead from the
pdel on the right side of the vehicle. The pivots for this rod often get
overlooked when it comes to lubrication maintenance. A few drop od oil and
all will be well.
Of course if it is a LHD vehicle, all bets are off.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions, everyone.
Turns out it wasn't the master cylinder, calipers or pedal... my
mechanic took out a "joint" somewhere in the brake line, cleaned &
lubed it, and now the car brakes like a dream. Smoother than it ever
has since I've owned it.
